Présentation de l'architecture extérieure et intérieure et du décor de la plus grande cathédrale gothique, construite au XIIIe siècle. ©Electre 2021

Présentation en anglais Heritage monograph Panoramic poster included ! Notre Dame Cathedral in Amiens was built over a short period during the 13th century and is a perfect example of architectural unity. It is an outstandingly beautiful cathedral which has survived the centuries without suffering the ravages of time. The perfectly preserved sculptures on its façades, the coherence of its overall design and the elegance of its interior elevation all command the admiration of visitors. The cathedral boasts rich furnishings and is a fascinating example of classical Gothic architecture, featuring innovations which herald the radiating Gothic style. Amiens Cathedral is considered to be the world's tallest Gothic church. It has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1981. In 1998, it featured for a second time on the list as one of the stages of the Routes of Santiago de Compostela in France. Today, it provides an outstanding example of the polychrome designs of Gothic cathedral entrances, as demonstrated in the night-time show « Amiens, the cathedral in colour ». This amazing spectacle has already been witnessed by over one and a half million visitors.
